A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Nov 20, 2019

To continue its series on the business side of dentistry, A Tale of Two Hygienists is taking a look at how you can ensure your office team works together like a well-oiled machine. For this discussion, Michelle is joined by co-host Eden Evie of MouthWatch and a guest who specializes in personality assessment.


Corinne “Corey” Jameson-Kuehl is the owner and business development leader for Custom Dental Solutions, a team of consultants that assists dental offices in developing a corporate culture that suits their vision and needs. Corey uses a combination of DISC (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance) and Driving Forces assessments to help her clients determine which roles jive well with their personality styles.


In this episode, Corey discusses which key traits her assessment measures, looks at which traits Michelle and Eden scored the highest on, and helps you figure out what kind of office work you’re best suited for.
